Week 9 Cricut Challenge

 Merry Christmas to you all, I hope you're enjoying this beautiful holiday. Last night we all sat on the couch and watched Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer. My kids had their Rudolph and Clarice hats on. They looked so cute. It's amazing how this movie no matter how old, doesn't get old.

 This weeks challenge is called Letters to Santa. I have some pics of my kids writing a letter to Santa, well at least they were trying to write, since they don't know how to write. But it was cute to see how they were trying.

In this weeks challenge I used the following carts:
Paper Lace for the Letters to Santa cut-outs
Christmas Cheer for the Scroll
Calligraphy Collection for the writing on the scroll (used with Cricut markers)

I also used Martha Stewart's punch to add underneath the ribbon. It's a simple layout, but I think it's cute.

 I hope you like this weeks challenge. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all. Stay safe

Thanks for stopping by

Cricut Challenge week 8

  Hello there everyone, I hope you are doing good on this rainy Sunday morning. This week I made a cute layout. It was inspired by my Mother-in-Law. When she watches my kids, she has the tendency to feed the kids junk food ALL the time, despite my repeated request for her to not to. But I guess, it's her right as Grandma. Originally I was going to make this a sign, but changed my mind because I have some pics of my kids eating a chocolate cupcake. They ended up with chocolate frosting all over their faces. So what better way to scrap those pics.

 The cartridges that I used were:
Sweet Shop Lite for the sweats that are cut out
Alphalicious for the font

  My good friend Dawn also worked on this challenge with me. I find it much easier to do challenges when someone does it with you. It's more motivating and fun. Below you will find her interpretation of my challenge.

You can find more of her creations at

 I hope you like my challenge, so please leave me your comments.

 I hope you have a wonderful day and Happy Crafting

Christmas Cards/ Giftbags

 Here are some of the few cards I made for myself and for some family to send out this Christmas Season. I wish I could say that these are my original designs, but they are not. I found these on a few different blogs and unfortunately I don't remember them at this time. I will look for them so I can give proper credit to the person who's blog I found them on.
This one was fun to make, I used holographic embossing powder for the trees. I have recently become a big fan of embossing powders. I just love the finished look they have.

 This one was pretty simple,what took the longest was to color in the stamped image. I originally made a set for my mother but then later she called and asked for me to make more. It was a good thing I didn't put my supplies away yet.

This one was pretty simple too. I made these for my Mother-in-law.

 I decorated these simple craft gift bags. I used a snowflake punch and a bling for the center of the main snowflake. I also used a fun software to make a kaleidoscope ornament out of pictures I already had on my computer. Their software is called Kaleidoscope Kreator 3. Its a really fun and simple way to have creative fun with your pictures.
 Here is a close up of the ornament.

 I made these gift bags for some of my very best crafting friends. We are meeting on Monday for a lunch date before we all get too busy with the holidays and our own families. I hope they like them.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful day.

Here is a cute Crafters Christmas poem I found on Facebook , Thought I would share it with you my crafty friends.

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wonderin what Santa, brought just for me;

Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
or a cricut? i said with a smile on my face!

And that's when i heard him...''HI SANTA,'' i said.
''you know good little girls should be in their beds''.

I know i should Santa, and now I've been caught!
but i was excited, to see what you brought.

Well, lets take a look in this room where you work.
he shook his head quickly and left with a jerk!

I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear...
you've got enough crap, I'll see you next year!

Week 7 Cricut Challenge

 Hi there everyone, I hope you are all doing well and surviving this Holiday season.  I have been trying my best, but both of my kids have been really sick and finally on their way to recovering.

  My friend Dawn sent me a S.O.S. text last week. She needed my help, so I ask what can I help her with. Well she is working on a project for her husband and needed a St. Louis Cardinals symbol.

 So I got my trusty Gypsy and started to work on it. The white portion was actually easy, just a little welding and dashes added and welded to try to match it as best as possible. The real challenge for me was to create a shadow for it. I had to add all the welded dashes but also proportion it to shadow it correctly. The shadowing didn't come out as perfect as I would like it to be, but it worked for what she needed. I hope her project comes out perfect. I will ask her to send me pics so you can see her finished project. I will post it as soon as I get it.

The Cartridge I used is Printing 101

  I do have a project in mind for next week, it will be a cute and fun one.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day. See you soon
